    I worked at Motorola Mobility (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great group of people who care about making great products. Collaboratorive design teams who are very knowledgeable in their craft.

    Cons

    Constant changing of production to different facilities makes it hard to control process sometimes. Travel to foreign countries not ideal work solution.

    Advice to Management

    Stick with one production facility and bring more jobs back to United States. Too much outsourcing is damaging quality reputation of Motorola.
